    Worn, by far... just because they fit like they were tailored to me.

    I have some Ernest Sewns I like a lot. And I'm surprised no one has mentioned APC's yet (they are the Creed of Styleforum).

    I like Gap best, because their sizing is good for me. They run long, so the regular length usually works, and I really like that they make all sizes in Tall, even teeny sizes so if you are, like 00 you can still get them in tall - stick figure size, I'm not, but am about 5'9" and thin, which actually looks really good in tight jeans so I want them to FIT.

    I used to like Levis but was pissed that they dropped Long inseam in every size smaller than 6. Eddie Bauer too, they do Medium Tall but not Small Tall. At Gap I don't even need Tall, they are skewed tall to begin with, and I'm not legitimately Tall anyway, just on the tall side of regular.

    Well that is my rant and that's why I do like to buy jeans from Gap. 'Cause they fit and when on sale are affordable.

    APC.

    i have the following preferences:

    - slightly slim, but never tight.
    - straight legs or tapered.
    - selvage.
    - i prefer raw denim, sometimes a special wash can be nice too.
    - legs trimmed so they touch but not rest on the shoes.
    - overall good quality, beautiful and lasting fabric.
    - no weird colored stitches, patches, logo's, etc.

    a clever design detail can be alright, but i prefer them plain and simple. what matters to me most is fit/shape and then quality. the brand isn't important to me, it just needs to meet my requirements. apc does that for me, so that's why i mentioned them.

    Atelier la Durance.................Prescott selvage is perfect for me.

    Edwin E-47 rainbow selvage gives a beautiful fade, a little slim in the leg to be perfect.

    I recently picked up some Agave Denim jeans and a couple shirts. ENTIRELY handcrafted in the USA! Sierra Trading Post has a lot of Agave clothing on sale for 50%+ off, and if you look for a coupon code you can get another 35% + free shipping. The items I got ended up being 70-80% off retail pricing...

    As F'ed as we are in the USA right now, and as a ME specializing in manufacturing and assembly, I think it's a good idea to encourage businesses to operate here rather than outsource to China or Vietnam...

    Diesel, Levi´s and Wrangler, but lately I am a fan of the high quality and excellent cut of H&M jeans (and how inexpensive they are!).

    I try to avoid paying over a 100$ for jeans, my tactic is not owning many of them hehe. They are mostly Diesel, bought on sale, used, and a few are new.

    As long as it fits well, that is what I care about most, so far Diesel fits perfect, and breaks in generously.

    Hey man, can I ask your opinion on the Samurais and Sugar Canes? I've been drooling over the idea of getting a pair of Samurais for ages. Were they easy to break in, wash, etc? Also did you by any chance get a deal (in terms of price) on them anywhere?

    Oh yeah, to answer the question, APC does the best price for quality for raw denim. The best fit for me has always been Rock and Republic, they just use the perfect blend of cotton and synthetic to make their jeans stretch just a little. I really like my Double RLs, great winter weight with a cool western finish. But I really want to get more into Japanese raw denim, hence the interest in Samurais, Sugar Canes, Iron Hearts, etc.

    Good choice. 45rpm are my favourite jeans without a doubt. The quality of the denim can not be beaten

    I dont know many famous brands but for my experience Levis is the best (never owned a Diesel to compare).

    I have some American Eagle and Aeropostale, they are good for a fair price.
